OTD: January 8

8 January 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on January 8...

The Iron went ahead through Paul Hayes at Premier League leaders Chelsea in the FA Cup third round in January 2005.

The frontman turned to fire the Iron into a deserved early lead.

Mateja Kezman levelled with a thumping volley before half-time, and Chelsea went ahead when Andy Crosby deflected Didier Drogba's cross into his own net.

Scunthorpe's Cleveland Taylor header found the post, while Andy Butler also came close, before Eidur Gudjohnsen sealed victory four minutes from time.
